The flight from Vienna: now ballet chief heads for Milan

It looks like the entire upper deck of the Vienna Opera will be cleared before Bogdan Roscic lands in the summer as its next manager.

The latest to follow Dominique Meyer to La Scala is the highly rated ballet chief Manuel Legris, it was learned tonight.

Legris will succeed  Frédéric Olivieri in Milan at the end of the year.

  • Legris announced in 2017 that he would not extend his contract at Wiener Staatsballett beyond the 2019/2020 season. His successor (a German whose name I don’t recall, and it is too late in the evening to phone the press office) was named shortly thereafter.
